We are the South Coast’s leading part-time theatre school, which is why more people choose us to train their children than anyone else!

Every new student is entitled to a 2 week taster course to make sure Swish is the right place for you!

Swish boasts some of the best tutors in the area in all aspects of the Performing Arts. We are unrivalled in the shows, opportunities and professional engagements that we offer.

“I have always believed that children should be given every opportunity to fulfil their dreams and my school is proud to train not just those with natural talent, but those with passion and enthusiasm as well.

Yes, it is important that talent is nurtured, but equally important is ‘creating’ the hidden star within every child which enables them to succeed, not only in the industry, but in life itself…their future.”

Tina Witham, Principal
